NEWS: Kelly Lee Owens shares haunting new single ‘One’
Kelly Lee Owens has unveiled her haunting a new single, ‘One‘ taken from her forthcoming album, LP.8, out this Friday, April 29th (digital) and June 10th (physical) on Smalltown Supersound. Watch the stark accompanying visualiser below.
LP.8 was created with no preconceptions or expectations: an unbridled exploration into Owens’ creative subconscious. Showing an impressively expansive vocal range ‘One‘ bridges the evocative spaces between her acclaimed second album, Inner Song, and LP.8, with its stunning blend of vocals and spoken word set against a backdrop of the spacious subtle textures of Owens’ avant-garde-pop production.
After releasing Inner Song in the early days of the pandemic, Owens was eager to make use of her untapped creative energy, and made the spontaneous decision to go to Oslo for a change of scenery and some undisturbed studio time. There she began collaborating with the renowned avant-noise musician Lasse Marhaug (Merzbow, Sunn O))), Jenny Hval). Together, Owens and Marhaug envisioned making music somewhere in between Throbbing Gristle and Enya, artists who have had a lasting impact on Owens’ creativity. They paired tough, industrial sounds with Celtic mysticism, and, in doing so, created music that ebbs and flows between tension and release. Soon after, Owens called her label to tell them she had created something of an outlier, her “eighth album.”
